Upgrade 10.5.8 to Snow Leopard - 02-19-2010, 12:08 AM
I can find the scenario via search.
I have a Dell mini 9 with a runcore running 10.5.8. I want to upgrade to Snow Leopard. I cant find much info for an upgrade install. I have access to a Macbook plus a 16g and a 4g usb sticks.
If someone would be kind enough to point me to a resource for an upgrade install I would be grateful.

You've got a Dell EFI install and for 10.6.x you want NBI.... that's non trivial I believe. Could you back up you Apps and home and then rebuild?

Use disc utility to restore the DVD to an 6 gig USB thumb drive, apply NetBookMaker and you now have a USB installer.
